A 15-year-old suffering from severe anorexia wrote goodbye letters to her family and dog before stepping out in front of a train, an inquest heard.
Pippa “Pip” McManus died at Gatley railway station in December 2015 just days after being released from The Priory hospital, where she had been sectioned under the mental health act.
One of the letters was read out at the inquest into her death, according to Manchester Evening News. It said: “I do want to grow up and have a life, at the moment I don’t have one. I can’t fight anorexia anymore. I have tried so very hard, but it has won me.”
Pip’s parents Marie and James were concerned about her release, the inquest heard, and would have liked her to be transferred to a new facility.
However Stockport Coroners’ Court heard how she died at Gatley train station following a fight with her family over her gym use.
Pip was diagnosed aged 13 and was admitted to The Priory in 2014, weighing just 27kg. She had previously received treatment elsewhere.
Her family have now set up a fundraising page in her memory to help others suffering from eating disorders.

“The tear in the thread of our family will never be mended. Pip spent her last 3 years fighting against anorexia, malnutrition, depression and self harm," Ms McManus wrote on the page.
"I do not want Pip’s life and suffering to have been in vain, whenever she was able, she tried to help others suffering from similar conditions."
She added: “With your support, Pip will never be forgotten, her memory will live on, and her foundation will continue to help the people she tried to help while she was still alive.”
